Mathematical Science/Education – Program Features

Project-Based Learning

Students focused on teaching mathematics in grades 9–12 can take advantage of Maryville’s Early Access program entering in their junior year. Students complete the mathematics major with specific science certification requirements and then the M.A. in Education in their fifth year.

Maryville has more school placements than any other university in the region, providing students numerous opportunities to apply the techniques they learn in classes to the classroom experience.

Curricula recommended by the Mathematical Association of America and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics are offered for those students interested in pursuing graduate work.

Professional Partnerships

Maryville is proud to work with numerous corporate and civic organizations in St. Louis and beyond through partnerships created in support of our academic programs and student opportunities. The list of the University's partners is long, impressive, and ever expanding: Rawlings, Mercy, St. Louis Public Schools, Parkway School District, Edward Jones, Northwestern Mutual, RGA, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues, and Maritz, just to name a few. Our partners provide students with opportunities to experience hands-on involvement in real-world projects, requiring them to hone market-ready skills even before they graduate. Students also experience a variety of work environments and develop a network of industry contacts through these partnerships, so Maryville graduates often have a competitive edge in the job market. In fact, many of our partners provide valuable internships—which can lead to full-time jobs with the firm or agency.
